War Commission Grave and Rosebud

Camera Club meet at the local church. I had no idea the cemetry was so large or that it has a large number of War Commision graves from WW1.

I only photographed 4 subjects in 1 1/2 hours; an angel (think Dr Who!) a huge cross, a fellow photographer and this headstone.

I took about 20 of this headstone with different light painting methods and this is by far the most surprising, and effective, of the shots.

This soldier died in February 1918 aged 35. I hope he rests in peace. Will make sure to visit over Remembrance weekend (minus camera I think) to see it in daylight.
Really nicely - and respectfully - done. The rim lighting looks great.
